Expression demo

Expression

I was walkin’ with my lady, from a Mexican café
Saw a teen-age kid, in a dimly lit foggy downtown alleyway
Like a boulevard Da Vinci, buncha spray cans at his feet
Stood there in the dust, and he painted us on a canvas of concrete

He’s got somethin’ that he feels
That his spirit can’t conceal
Under cover of the dark
He reveals his secret heart
And it almost borders on obsession
Cos it’s life…cos it’s love
That’s the beauty of expression


Further down the moonlit sidewalk, we heard magic on the wind
Old man by the curb, wove enchanted words with a thrift store violin
There beneath the city’s shadows, I soon took my lady’s hands
As that old man swayed, ev’ry note he played led us in a mystic dance

He’s got somethin’ that he feels
That his spirit can’t conceal
Under cover of the dark
He reveals his secret heart
And it almost borders on obsession
Cos it’s life…cos it’s love
That’s the beauty of expression


We got home and walked inside, feeling like the spellbound night
Had already stripped us bare
There were whispers…there was wine, I was hers and she was mine
As if nothing else was there


We share somethin’ that we feel
That our spirits can’t conceal
Under cover of the dark
We reveal our secret hearts
And it almost borders on obsession
Cos it’s life…cos it’s love
That’s the beauty of expression

Cos it’s life…cos it’s love
That’s the beauty of expression…

Cool song... from 2010? OR - newly recorded and produced? Excellent vocal, and everything.
Particularly like how the recorded version omitted the word "almost" from the Chorus... it flows well and works better without it.
My old 2 cents, recycled.

EDIT: Why not post this up in either the Peer-To-Peer, or General Hangout - where it will more likely be noticed?

Thanks, Pete. It's ten years old. Man, I can't believe it.

I'm a bit of a song hermit. That's why I just post here. :)

Well - if it's of any comfort or empathy: I'm just now producing a tune I composed in 1972.
It's only taking 48+ years to get there... and it still aint done yet; but SOON!! :? :shock: 8-) :P
